    Default Does Zimbra 's Nginx proxy provide load balancing ???

    Or it is just use to locate the multi mailstore if set ?


    Any load balancing technique can use in Zimbra ? MX record , DNS round roubin ?

    The proxy doesn't load balance. It directs requests to whichever mailbox an account is assigned to (the account's zimbraMailHost).

    However, you can use DNS round robin to have multiple proxies. We do this with two proxy servers in front of 4 mailboxes. We're doing it for redundancy's sake.

    Or for LB/HA use HA-Proxy.

    If you want to load balance outgoing mail, you could set up an MX record for the two MTAs used for outgoing mail and set up the relayhost param in postfix to use that MX record.
